Could use a couple more pieces of gloss paper. Ink transferred onto the paper from my jersey even though I washed it twice before applying. But besides that it was great. The video is very helpful. Absolutely imperative to watch if you want to do a good job and it's your first time ironing numbers onto a jersey. 5 stars!

Might just be my ironing skills but I tried to get these on a jersey and the colors from the jersey just show right through. Instead of these being white on a blue/orange jersey they end up looking like a cloudy version of the jersey. I have also struggled with a couple of the numbers edges don't wan to stay stuck down. Given the price, they do the trick but I really struggled to get a good look out of them. So maybe give my install the same rating I gave the product.
Great lettering kit. One of my friends had previously purchased this set. He had given me his leftover letters and numbers so I could form my name and number on my jersey. I like the look so much I bought a couple other jerseys and a kit. I knew my local T-shirt embroidery shop would put them on for me using their heat press for just a few dollars.
I am pretty crafty so ironing my own name and number on my jersey did not seem like something I could not tackle. But it was not as easy as it seemed once I got into it. The instructions are lacking somewhat and it would be very helpful if a video from Factory Effex was up loaded to YouTube, I found lots of videos on youtube but none that were specific to my task. I would recommend trying this on a practice jersey first. The kit comes with enough to do two. Also remember that the letters and numbers are white, so consider how that works with multi colored jerseys.
Great quality lettering, plenty of letters and numbers for most names. Only thing is do a warm peel when taking the letters off instead of a cool peel as the instructions say. Will buy again for future jerseys.
I bought 2 of these kits to do 2 jerseys it didn't have enough 8's to do but one each like a lot of amateur riders I have a 3 digit number and no matter what I tried I couldn't get these numbers to fit on a size L jersey without getting into the mesh side panels the overall width of the numbers is a problem and the slant of the numbers makes the problem worse they would probably be ok if you're putting them on a size XXXL jersey but anything smaller youre gonna have getting a 3 digit number to fit
Fortunately for me my last name is short(5 letters) or u wouldn't of been able to fit my name. I had a horrible time trying to get the numbers and letters to bond to the jersey so after cooling the peeling process was a mess. I had to get a wet sponge and scrub the left over paper off the numbers. Also my jersey bleed through my numbers and letters but it looks pretty cool. I refuse to ever do this again. Worth it to have a professional do it.
They look and work fantastic, however you have to be easy with how much heat you use. I learned the hard way by using an iron over it for just a few seconds too long that it will allow the number to become see through letting the color of the material underneath come through. Do it in small amounts until it is melted securely and it will look great. Have had them on my main jersey for months with multiple washes and they still look like the day I put them on.
I wear the Fox summer jerseys that are vented all over and have the mesh and it stuck to it for while but after a couple of washes it started to come off. On a normal jersey it works good but trying to put it over mesh it really struggles.
They didn't iron on almost at all after I followed the directions, and then wouldn't come off, pretty much ruined a band new jersey.
The numbers are far too large to fit 3 on a jersey, I had to overlap them by about a half inch. Same with the letters, i have 8 letters in my last name and I had to overlap them to make them fit on my back. Would not buy again.
These are tricky.. Had problems peeling after i ironed them on. The paper wanted to stick to the Iron On. May have been something I did wrong. My biggest complaint is they were white letters going on a colored jersey and the color bled through. It worked but like I stated..for the begginer.
